Seventh-Ranked Bruins Come Back to Best Beavers

April 1, 2011

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - The seventh-ranked Bruins came back from an early 2-0 deficit and took advantage of a costly Oregon State error in the third to score five unearned runs, as junior Andrea Harrison posted her second-career, four-hit game to help UCLA to a 6-2 victory on Friday night at Easton Stadium in the Pac-10 opener for both teams.

UCLA improves to 24-5 overall, while Oregon State falls to 16-9.

Harrison had three singles and a double to move her batting average to .410 on the season. Junior Katie Schroeder went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in. Seven of the nine Bruin starters had at least one hit, with UCLA recording 11 as a team.

Senior Donna Kerr picked up the win to move to 9-1 on the year, striking out four and giving up two runs (one earned), two hits and three walks. She had three 1-2-3 innings in the first, third and fourth and struck out a pair in the first and second. Junior Aleah Macon tossed two shutout innings of relief, fanning one and allowing a hit and a walk.

The Beavers cracked the scoreboard first with two runs in the top of the second. Paige Hall walked to open the inning and moved to second on a single up the middle by Desiree Beltran. After a groundout to first by Mary Claire Brenner moved both runners up a base, Ally Kutz blooped a single the opposite way to right to plate Hall to make it 1-0. Nikki Chandler was then hit to load the bases, and one out later, a passed ball scored Beltran for the Beavers' second run.

After leaving two on base in the first inning and three in the second, the Bruins would not be denied in the third by sending 10 to the plate and putting up a five-spot. The inning began when senior GiOnna DiSalvatore reached on a throwing error by Maggie Doremus, which allowed DiSalvatore to also take second. Harrison followed with a single to left to move DiSalvatore to third and freshman Kellie Fox would drive in the Bruins' first run on a sacrifice fly to center to cut the deficit in half. Junior Dani Yudin then walked to put a pair on base, but freshman Alyssa Tiumalu tapped a ball to first, with Erin Guzy going to third to force Harrison for the second out.

The Bruins weren't done yet though, scoring four more runs with two outs in the inning. Freshman Talee Snow was hit to load the bases and sophomore Devon Lindvall singled through the left side to plate Yudin and tie the game at two. Schroeder followed with a double to left to bring home Tiumalu and Snow to give the Bruins a 4-2 lead. Sophomore B.B. Bates then blooped one just in front of Doremus at second, beating out the throw which allowed Lindvall to score to make it 5-2.

UCLA added another in the fourth. Harrison and Fox opened the inning with back-to-back singles to right and left, respectively. A walk to Yudin loaded the bases, and one out later, Snow singled to right to bring in Harrison to make it 6-2.

The Bruins continue their three-game series with Oregon State on Saturday at 6 p.m. Gametracker and audio will be available at UCLABruins.com.
